It's a strange sculpture!

Thank you, Peter. The "bean" is a draw at Millennium Park, but it is a bit strange.--Frank

Beautiful Frank, we can’t ask for a better ‘reflections’ subject!
Great use of the foreground on the composition…
The moon’s reflection adds the icing on the cake!


Your comments and kindness are much appreciated, John. Thank you.--Frank

Frank,

Not sure where to start. I was intrigued by the thumbnail, thought that is a really cool shot, have to see more of it.

Opened it up and BANG! it hit me like a ton of bricks. I love this shot. The comments are right on. I love the use of the steps to bring you into the shot. The combination of the curves, lines, smooth and rough surfaces are perfect. Oh, and the reflection is great also. I could look at this for hours. I would love to have a print on my desk. Good luck.

Karen

I had no idea what this was till I read all the comments and had to do a Google search once I did. Apparently it wasn't able to be photographed until recently!

Here's an interesting story that talks about the great tax dollars at work!! Reminds me of a thread a few years ago over on dpreview about different areas where you have to buy a photography permit just to take a picture, and the fines involved if you don't (even as an amateur).

Living in the Chicagoland area, I see TONS of pictures of people trying to take cool pictures of the bean, most just look lame or the same. Seriously, everyone that goes downtown invariably comes back with a picture of the bean...

But this is absolutely stunning. Seeing this reminds me again why it was made.

Fantastic shot, Frank! Congratulations on your well-deserved lopsided victory. Would that presidential politics could be so clear!

All the best,

Endre
